I imagine Michigan sucks for at least 33k reasons and I’m sure others love it for the same number of reasons. I was recently taken aback by a statement from the Michigan governor,Granholm (D) , that the stimulus was working in her state per the 33,000 jobs created or retained.
This occurred at the cost of 3.7 BILLION DOLLARS!!!!
Concerned that the piece I was reading had a misprint I searched Michigan and 33,000 and look what I found:
33000 homes weatherized: I wonder how much that cost ?
33000 jobs lost: This was regards general job losses. The number also came up regards GM job cuts but not all 33k were in Michigan. A point Gov. Granholm stressed ad nauseum.
33000 jobs for a mere 3.7 billion: The crux of the post and my general curiosity.
I feel for people in Michigan. Clearly on the downslope with zero traction in sight the leaders there dream of green jobs revolutions and other pixie dust idiocy.
Unemployment there is at an astounding 15.2%. The faces behind those digits don’t need dreams they need reality. Here’s some reality. Rust belt,politically corrupt,overly bureaucratic,unioned up states are not gonna get any of the absolutely non positive impact green jobs that will someday,maybe show up.
That is that and you don’t need to read it 33000 times to get it.
